Thrift Store Find

 

I stopped by the Salvation Army today on my way home from work and boy am I glad I did! I found a fabulous vintage dresser for only 39.99! Score! It is a quality piece, solid wood with dovetailed drawers. The drawers were just a little sticky, but with a little paraffin wax, they were like new.

This is a great trick to know…if you have a drawer that has wood slides and is sticky/not gliding smoothly, it is an easy fix with either beeswax or paraffin wax. Just rub the wax in all of the slides and anywhere else the drawer touches the dresser. It is that easy.

What is your favorite thrift store find?
